March 28 roundup


  • The Pittsburgh story is amazing–wow.

    The State Bar should be looking at the conduct of all lawyers in the case, including the prosecutors. That won’t happen, of course, but it seems lower than low that the cops would blame the defense attorney here. The police captain should be fired immediately.

    >”You are now under arrest on suspicion of, such and such. You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.”

    IF– it were coupled with a requirement for the police promptly to secure and examine evidence that would prove or disprove a defendant’s statement. Failure to secure that evidence would be interpreted as proof for the defense.
